Read this, I only put the picture to draw your attention
I keep getting messages that say “Cole you’re perfect, your awesome, I love you.” NO YOU DON’T let me make that clear, what you are feeling is infatuation. In no way do I want to push any of you away with this post, I want you to realize what your doing. If you’re hopping around from one celebrity crush to the next, you are being consumed by mass media and reproduced ideas of male and female perfection. THERE IS A REASON PEOPLE LIKE CELEBRITIES, it’s not because they’re normal but also not because they’re strange. Media make you strive for ideas of what is perfect, which NO ONE IS.
When I receive a message saying something like “Cole you’re a shining example of a human being” I like it of course, no one dislikes outright flattery, but that isn’t the point and never will be for this blog. My point is to make the people who unconsciously like me to question “WHY DO I LIKE HIM? Is he different than what I am?” No, that’s is the point, no. You have the ability to break past barriers that lower your own self esteem, barriers set by media. If I need to take ugly photos or make a fool of myself, fine. This is what needs to be realized.
I am not one of you. you are not one of us. we are each so vastly different and complex.
Remember, seeking similarity shades difference. Seeking difference shades similarity. Seeking similarity highlights difference. Seeking difference never highlights similarity.
